I had posted early and asked if swaddling really worked. DS has never liked to sleep in crib or bassinet and also had colic which appears to be diminishing or perhaps I'm better at knowing his cues and putting him to sleep. In the past I swaddled but DS would figure out how to get his arms out. I also hated the idea - seems unnatural. Well, for the sake of trying to get him to sleep in his crib and take longer naps, I decided to give swaddling a good try. Received some testimonials from moms on this forum that swaddling works for them. Well, I honed up on my swaddling skills and the result is that I have been able to get him to sleep in his crib a couple of times and when swaddled he does tend to nap longer. Here's the new dilemma: is there such as thing as being too reliant on swaddling? I remember reading that there is a time, when it is not recommended that you swaddle (SIDS risk?).
